Nintendo 2016 Treehouse

The last few weeks, there has been a lot of worried whispers about Nintendo’s plans at E3. When they announced that they were only going to have one game playable, the new Zelda game, people were understandably flabbergasted. While E3 may not hold the same prominence in the game industry it did years ago, it’s still an event where the audience expects to be wowed and impressed. Luckily, more details have come to light about what exactly is going to happen during E3, and once more it looks like the Treehouse is going to be the thing people should be paying attention to.

On the first day of E3, June 14th, Nintendo will be live streaming the new Wii U Legend of Zelda game at 9AM PT, followed by some sweet live gameplay of the highly anticipated Pokemon Sun and Moon. On the 15th starting at 10AM PT, the company will hold a Pokemon GO Question & Answer session followed by showcasing upcoming game releases for both their consoles, with titles on display such as Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, Monster Hunter Generations and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.

Though no details have been announced for the 16th yet, I wouldn’t be at all surprised for Nintendo to have a couple more tricks up their voluminous sleeves. It’s nice to see Nintendo hasn’t thrown in the towel yet, and hopefully they will have a great show. Stay tuned to oprainfall for more E3 news as it hits.
